PRME Recognizes Faculty and Students for their Contributions to SDG Integration

2023 PRME Faculty Recognition Award for Excellence in SDG Integration

The intention of this award is to recognize faculty achievements within the PRME Community in integrating the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into business school activities in the period of January 2022 to April 2023 that exemplifies one or more of the Six PRME Principles.

The Secretariat received 43 submissions of inspiring and impactful work in creating innovative teaching programs that are integrating the SDGs, encouraging more SDG focused research, working collaboratively to advocate for PRME and the SDGs, and serving the broader PRME community and society. The submissions went through an evaluation by the PRME Secretariat based on the following selection criteria.

A project, programme, initiative, activity, function, or event that either:

  • demonstrates the integration of the SDGs by delivering outcomes that have collective benefit; and

  • supports one or more of the six PRME principles; and

  • has received internal recognition within the business school or its affiliated university for its contribution to the SDGs;


  • demonstrates the integration of the SDGs by delivering outcomes; and

  • supports one or more of the six PRME principles; and

  • has received external recognition for its contribution to the SDGs.


  • Evidence of internal recognition may include one or more sources such as student feedback, approval as core curriculum, or an internal research award.

  • Evidence of external recognition may include external business school or university surveys.

  • Evidence need not include the words SDGs but must clearly focus on the one or more of the SDGs or ESG or sustainability or sustainable development or ethical leadership or responsible leadership.

  • Evidence does not include the rankings from accreditation bodies.

From the list of 43 candidates, the PRME Secretariat selected 10 for the final shortlist that was sent to the Faculty Award Review Committee. This committee is composed of community members presented below, to whom we express our sincere thanks.

2023 PRME Student Organization Awards

The purpose of the 2023 PRME Student Awards is to honor outstanding student-led initiatives within the PRME Community that demonstrate exceptional levels of innovation and impact in their actions toward the advancement of Responsible Management Education and the Sustainable Development Goals at local, national, and global levels.

The three-stage awarding process was led by the PRME Global Students (PGS) with the support of the PRME Secretariat. Beginning with the Nomination Stage, each of the nine PGS Regional Leaders nominated three outstanding sustainability-oriented student-led organizations in their respective continents and global sub-regions. Subsequently, in the Scoring Stage, a quantitative approach was used to narrow down the 27 nominations in nine top-listed candidates. Finally, during the Deliberation Stage, the PGS Regional Leaders met to discuss the shortlisted candidates and reached first a consensus on the three finalists, and subsequently, picked up the final winner.

In 2023, one winner and two runner-ups were selected for the PRME Student Award, and they were presented during a ceremony at the 2023 PRME Global Forum. They are:

Two of the research teams paired up with a business team of German students at Pforzheim University to complete the Net Impact Circular Plastics Challenge. This involved working on Central European Time for several days as they conducted meetings and used innovation boards to share research & learn how the recycling process works in Germany. Four of Texas State students studied AI and technology with different professors to better understand how people could efficiently use photographic and sensor technology to improve recycling in waste management systems. Net Impact Chapter also formed a relationship with the San Marcos Chamber of Commerce in hopes to bring back free Energy Audits of businesses in the surrounding area.
